October 31, 2015

gv_nov-2015_dia-kester-fireMore than 160 firefighters battled a major emergency blaze in a large Van Nuys commercial building on September 10, 2015. LAFD crews arrived at 14937 Calvert Street to find fire through the roof of a mid-block 240′ x 180′ one-story commercial building, built in zero-clearance configuration among similar concrete-tilt up structures to the east and west.
Firefighters mounted an attack for nearly 20 minutes before structural compromise forced them to a defensive posture with heavy streams. The fire was extinguished in just over two hours.
